I love ForkLift, but I find it reports incorrect permissions on remote files. Be great if it handled cloud accounts too.

It is not the cheapest FTP client, but take my word it is about the best FTP client Mac OSX can run. Very native GUI and easy to work with. Actually, this should be the Finder by default. :)

Forklift is really a great "must have" tool for any OSX user! BUT I got a big problem with Version 2.5.9 and OSX 10.9.1... If I start Forklift, for some reason it shows no files or folders in the panes. The activity icons are running and then the OSX finder freezes.
Any idea? I already did a fresh install of forklift after removing ALL related files and directories. Also removed OSX Fuse, nothing changed... same effect.

On my older MacBook Air Finder is often sluggish. Forklift is not only a reliable FTP and WebDAV client, but also a good Finder alternative.

Please submit a bugreport at support@binarynights.com. Usually this is caused by a corrupted OSXFuse. Reinstalling or removing OSXFuse should solve this issue.

Absolutely top class! My only regret about Forklift - and it is a big one - is that I didn't get it years ago. It has completely changed the way I use my Mac when it comes to file related stuff, and has seriously boosted my productivity in so many ways - many of which I didn't anticipate when I bought it.

Compared to the normal Finder windows this is in a whole different league. It is feature-packed - to the point where I haven't found anything it can't do - and it is totally stable. I haven't had a single problem with it and I've used it for many months now.

I highly recommend this software for any Mac user who ever has to manage files, and that is pretty much everyone.

When it comes to remote server like ftp, WebDav, S3 or your network it's an indispensable tool for your workflow.

Terrific app. It is not cheap but worth every $.
Very solid working and up-to-date GUI.

Recommended.

So far, it's been a pleasure to use Forklift for day-to-day Finder-like activities. It transfers files inexplicably quickly from my HD to an external HD (I didn't think software could make a noticeable difference) and just works well. It's not got as many bells and whistles as Path Finder, but then I rarely make use of what PF offers.

The one disappointment I've had with FL thus far is that it really kicked and screamed when I first triedto connect to my web server. If I opened a connection, the server wouldn't open in Forklift. The connection interface would just hang. It was weird, I just couldn't find my server in Forklift until closed the open FL window and then opened a new one. Now, however, it seems to connect okay. BTW to rule out server issues, I connected with Fetch and Speed Download 5 with no problems whatsoever.

Overall, I like this app and am looking forward to version 3 (I own two copies!). I hope that in version three, we will see a customizable sidebar and also have the ability to make FL the default file browser. Small wishes!

Yeah I agree. Most apps you buy at the AppStore are updated with a huge latency.

Latency is because of Apple review process that isn't deterministic and last for minimum 4 days for one attempt.

MAS 2.5.2 crashes on startup on 10.7.4 for me every time. Had to fall back to 2.5.1 from a Time Machine backup. 2.5.1 is working fine.

The devs should look into it.

Clean install of forklift 2.5.1 onto a new MacBook running 10.8. The app no longer saves my ftp passwords to my keychain.

Is this a feature or a bug?

I am a Forklift 2.0.8 user and downloaded 2.5 for testing. When I launch 2.5 it imports all my FTP accounts and settings except the passwords.

Is it only for me or? (Big problem!)

If I buy Forklift version 2.5 in the MUPromo Bundle... can I use my serial number with version 2 (I guess I would have to download separate from developer site)? I have MacOS 10.6 and not 10.7 which is needed by version 2.5

Anyone know the work around for only having MacOS 10.6?

Now that 2.5 is at beta, I downloaded it. It doesn't seem that it is using the preference file because all my favorites are gone! Is there a way to get them back without having to add them again?

Ignore my post above. The "PLACES" section was apparently minimized by default and that is why I didn't see anything.

Hate to be dummy o´the day... but, can anyone tell me if I can do an incremental sync with Forklift, or does it have to be a full sync each time. I am specifically interested in syncing from one video folder to another. Thanks :-)
